Even though its not tops of the light beer chain. I would still drink this over any of the popular light beers ant day of the week. It looks and tastes like most light beers. Maybe just a lil better than most.

IndianaRed (2184) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear deep redish amber with very little off-white head and slight lacing. Aroma is fairly sweet and malty, whith some woody notes. Flavor is similar but some sweet brown sugar or caramel flavors. Feel is thin and carbonation is medium. I didnít find it to taste bad....I just didnt find that it tasted very good either.

i was able to drink quite a few of these cause a friend of mine had brought them over before they reiterd it. i actually like this (for a light brew). it had plenty of flavor to it and the aroma was sweeter then it tasted.

PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2004
Harlonís BBQ - Austin, Tx. Airport. Pours a light copper with a minimal white head, no lacing. Brief aroma of fresh lake water, not much else. Flavor is crisp with very brief caramel hints, but fleeting. Mouthfeel is choking and stinging, very, very dry. HAs that same throat clenching nature that Michelob Ultra has.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Recieved in a trade with Kevin. Poured a brown and amber color. The head is just slightly off white. The aroma is nutty caramel. The taste is chewed up sugared bubblegum. There is also a little bit of English walnuts and caramel. The body is fairly thin.

I have lived in Texas all my life and never heard of this beer until i was looking for beer that I have never tried. I picked this up at a gas station and I like the lable so I had high hopes. This beer let me down. I reall think this beer is not bad, but it has no flavor. Its not watered down like most light beer, but it just has no flavor. I think you throw in some smokey flavor or some chocolate flavor and this beer might be pretty good.

Ziegen Bock was Anheuser's answer to Texas' cult favorite, Shiner Bock. But in these heady days of Atkins mania, Shiner introduced Shiner Light, and so Ziegen has to offer Ziegen Light. We could do without this carb fetish, and this is little better than the rest, but at least it gives the appearance of retaining some dignity. I say "appearance" because I strongly suspect food coloring at work here. The color is rich caramel with a hint of red--far more dark than any 3.4g of carbs could produce. The aroma is that plain metal-grape soda aroma that you get from malt liquor in a can. The flavor is initially promising, with an underlying fruitiness (cherry?) coming from the malts, though this disappears on closer inspection and leaves only a disappointing dustiness, and indeed, some really weird and ugly flavors. Some sweetness tries to come through, but the weirdness grows and grows. What's happening to this beer? Argghhh!! At least a smoothness gives more appearance of malt body, though it must be another trick because if it is truly light.... "Brewed and available only in Texas" is Anheuser-Busch's gift to the other 49 states and the rest of the world.
